of denver, where last week's presidential debate was held, gives president obama a slight edge over mitt romney in colorado, a key swing state. 47% to 43%. paul steinhauser joins us live now. what do you make of all this? >> reporter: the new poll numbers. those are pretty much in line, john, with what we saw prior to the debate. other polls conducted in colorado, as you mentioned, a key battleground state, where the president had a slight edge, same story. this new university of denver poll. among independents, the president has a double-digit lead. when are we going to see more polls? you're going to see a bunch over the next 48 hours the next couple of days leading up to the vice presidential debate. a bunch of major organizations, including cnn, are in the field right now. in key battleground states and with national surveys, john. >> the president coming off of the heels of what many are considering a lackluster debate performance. even he was poking fun at it over the weekend at his hollywood fund-raiser. >> and everybody here, incredible professionals. they're such great friends.
debate you've ever seen where barack obama was outstyled. body language, mitt romney looked much more presidential and come out mitt romney and continue to strike contrasts say that we are not a government with a country, we're a country with a government and empower the people in every way possible and point out that, you know, americans have lost 40% of their net worth under this administration. as you pointed out earlier, gas prices are twice as high. we have acts of war on anniversaries of 9/11 with no response other than appointing the task force to understand whether it was a spontaneous task force. point these things out and do not play prevent defense or you will lose to barack obama. >> you can bet the president will come back on offense in the next debate, for sure. bernie thompson, thank you so much. i enjoyed listening to your radio show the other day, as well. >>> one of the nation's top ceos accuses the obama administration of cooking the books. we'll hear from the former head of ge, next. there's big news. presenting androgel 1.62%. both are used to treat men with low t

three more debates, one vice-presidential, two presidential debates. the day after the debate, we see a very animated and almost angry barack obama, pretty much calling mitt romney, a liar. what do we expect as we move forward? desperation? do they overreak to the bad performance? >> well, i don't think they are overreaking. but they are -- they are desperate. what else can they possibly say? look, here was the one time when the two adversaries are out there, unfiltered by the media, which had been so in the tank to obama that they have snorkelling gear. everybody sought saw it. it was very straight. the moderator had no control, which is exactly the way it should be. he shouldn't be in the way. and it was no contest. it was no loss. they can only say that the other guy won because he was lying. in fact, the reason romney won was because he had the audacity in the first five minutes to go after the two central falsehoods are all the ads that obama has been running incessantly in ohio with great effect. the romney negatives are the highest of any challenger since that same walter monda
of the campaign. that cash could prove crucial, especially for ad buys in toss-up states like ohio, where obama rallied just yesterday. >>> and with one presidential debate behind them, mitt romney is already gearing up for the next face-off with president barack obama. mr. romney held a rally in virginia yesterday and today in florida, preparing for the next debate hosted by our own candy crowley. romney will also hold a rally in maryland tonight. >>> now to the new employment report. the labor department saying 114,000 jobs were created in september. and the unemployment rate fell, coming in at 7.8%. that's a drop of .3% from august. health care gave us the biggest boost in new jobs. transportation had a good month as well, with a 17,000 job gain. >> with only a month away now to the election, the big drop in unemployment has critics suggesting that the numbers may have been manipulated. we look at how the numbers are put together to find out if that's even possible. >> there are a couple things at play here. first, it's from 8.1% to 7.8%. i say forget it, erase it from your head. it doesn't

lielg romney wanted to be there and obama didn't want to be there. >> the challenger, mitt romney seemed more presidential than the president, more in command of miss facts, gums, principles. >> that was the frustration wrchl was the president tonight. >> the other media exaggerating the extent of the president's loss and ignoring the candidate's half truths in the process. fox news hypes the conservative website video of barack obama as a rashlgly charged revelation. >> on the eve of the first prez denl chal debate the first bomb is about to d dropped for the 2012 presidential white house. >> it was covered at the time. a right wing commentators trying to portray their president as an angry black man. plus the other big debate, jon stewart versus bill o'reilly. >> income redistribution. do you believe in it? >> do you? >> no. i asked first. >> it's a complicated one. i believe in social security. do you? >> yes, absolutely. >> so we're both socialists. >> no, no. >> was this clash of titan television or was it shtick? i'm howard kurtz and this is "reliable sources." i knew the media wer
was smart not to do that -- he wants to look presidential. he doesn't want his fingerprints on petty and going after someone. i think it is same is true of governor romney, vis-a-vis president obama. they can flood the market with the super pacs. >> exactly, exactly. if the president goes at the 47% and bain capital and the tax returns, it diminishes the president and it reduces him from the presidential level. and it makes him look petty and it makes hymn him look not like his greatest asset is that people say he's a nice guy who has been doing his best. he gets into that mode and he risks his most priceless asset. but brit hume's point. he has a tough, almost impossible record to defend, i mean, in terms of was it a good economy? it's been the worst economy we have had in the lifetime of most american and it is numbers are there. so how does he defend it if romney keeps smiling and going after him? >> greta: he has to communicate to the voters and talk to them. i think that's his strength. >> what does he communicate? he can get the crowdsil. he has to be able -- >> greta: he has a
. former presidential candidate newt gingrich and senior obama adviser david axelrod were asked if obama should have called out romney if he thought his opponent was being dishonest. >> the president of the united states had 90 minutes. now, if he had done his homework, if he had actually prepared, if he had actually studied romney, why didn't he say it? why didn't he take romney head on? first of all, the charge on the tax cuts is just plain wrong and i think virtually every analyst has said, and even your deputy campaign manager said the charge is wrong. but forgetting that for a second, the job of the president is supposed to be to be confident and to be able to stand up for what he believes in and to be able to articulate what's wrong. mitt romney walked over him. >> i will be honest with you, i think he was a little taken aback at the brazenness with which governor romney walked away from so many of the positions on which he's run, walked away from his record. and that's something we'll have to make an adjustment for. it takes a certain, as president clinton would say, it takes a ce

," and the honorable michael nutter, mayor of philadelphia and presidential surrogate in this tough campaign. gentlemen, thank you for joining us. always go to the elected official first. mr. mayor, what needs to be done right now to right this ship, to get obama back on a winning course? >> well, the president is on a winning course and as you laid out earlier, chris, with all the things that mitt romney either lied about or denied about, what we call that in philadelphia is just lying, denying, and alibiing. and if that's what you're going to spend your time doing and focus on style, then you'll have a pretty decent night. president obama is focused on substance. let me give you three quick numbers here, chris, which i think ultimately is what this election is all about. 31 straight months of job growth here in the united states of america. 5.1 million jobs created in the private sector. and unemployment at 7.8%, the lowest it's been since the president took the oath of office in january of 2009. things are moving in the right direction. this campaign is moving forward. we've got 30 days to go, and w
